Grand Chariot (グランシャリオ Guranshario?) is a Lightning-elemental arte and Light-elemental spell in Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Vesperia, respectively.

Arte Description and History

Grand Chariot acts as a physical arcane arte in Tales of Symphonia, while it is an altered arte for a spell in Tales of Vesperia. In Tales of Symphonia, it is one of Colette Brunel's two combination artes, in which she combines the master versions of Ray Thrust and Pow Hammer. Upon activation, she throws two rings that cause lightning to strike.

In Tales of Vesperia, Grant Chariot is a spell available to Estelle. Upon casting, the real-world constellation of the Big Dipper will appear on the targeted enemy. Each star will then explode, dealing damage to the target. Grand Chariot is activated as an altered arte if Estelle is equipped with the skill "Chain" while using Photon. After achieving mastery of the altered arte, Estelle can learn it as a separate arte that can be activated without the skill equipped.
